That's not even news.  I would be surprised if they didn't endorse Q

"the demand for lies exceeds supply" is about the best summation of what seems to me to be the driving force in current republican politics that i've seen.

Political parties aren't some sort of moral barometers for the country. They are there to make money. Got people that will fork it over? Take advantage.

See churches and NRA.

TBF, the republicans attempt to move to populism got tied to nationalism so that made it an untenable position. The dems   :dunno: ultimately nothing will change. Eventually the nationalist wing of the republicans will lose steam and interest, and the progressives will continue to spin their wheels within the democratic party. The establishment of both parties have incentives for colluding to maintain the status quo. Change gets gridlocked and republicans and suburban democrats get to stay comfortable. Win win, right :excited:

the non-"establishment" wings of each party are (at best) somewhere between actual idiots and dangerously ignorant, so yes, that would be the best option, although i think the republicans are too far gone.

Ignorant idiots, how dare anyone challenge the status quo, it seems to be working out so well. Congratulations, sys.

The fact that you think it’s working out so terribly is quite ignorant.

I obviously can't do the sounds and explainers for crap but hopefully that makes sense
